Go Rest High On That Mountain

Gill wrote the song after the untimely death of country music superstar Keith Whitley. He wasn’t able to finish the song for a few years until his brother died. He gathered the grief he felt from his losses and put it in a song.

“Go Rest High on That Mountain” became a major hit upon its release in 1995. It also garnered CMA’s song of the Year in 1996.

Gill set eyes of the crowd in tears when he performed the song at George Jones funeral on May 2, 2013.

Vince Gill and Carrie Underwood brought a new face for the gospel classic, “How Great Thou Art.” These two of the most acclaimed country stars of their time have been vocal about their faith, and this particular duet epitomizes their confidence towards their fondness for God. It was a superior performance that wasn’t witnessed before, so to speak.

Better than a Hallelujah with Amy Grant

The couple, married for almost 18 years, have been doing Christmas shows that benefit their charities.
